Gotta get one of these going. I'll add a prize to the kitty for the winner.

Would love it. Let's hope to get at least 24 so you have to have a few Rich Yetts on your team.

I think all leagues are 12 teamers

So you're a newbie, huh. 1968, I think. We started a league with 4 NL and 4 AL teams. Played about 50 games--we were real innovators and had interleague play. We were astounded, even at that small sample size, how close to actual performance our stats came out. Although I do seem to remember Chico Ruiz (CIN) having some outlandish year. Greatest board game of all time. Monopoly a distant second. I used to love the football game back then too. I'm sure the Strat-o-Matic football game has changed a lot as the game has.

I played in many draft baseball leagues, but haven't been in one in several years. What kind of league are you talking about?

RCB, it's an online Strat-O league. Run by the Sporting News. They have a very large and eerily devoted online group/following.

Same actual cards from the 1986 season. Simulate three games every night at like 2 AM, wake up, read you box scores, tinker with your lineups. 162 game season. So it lasts like 54 days.

Very, very fun. If you love Strat, very addicting. The online game is great.

Check out the link above.

Also, the link below has some other info on online Strat (click on the "reasons to choose Strat-O-Matic"):
